Fisheries symbols

The fishery symbols show that the primary commercial fishing licence holder is authorised to operate in that fishery.

The register of authorities shows the list of all authorities operating under each symbol.

A licence holder can apply to move a fishery symbol between primary commercial fishing licences (except the E symbol for the adult eel fishery).

See the Fisheries (Commercial Fisheries) Regulation 2019 for details of each fishery symbol.
